Tuesday, November 19, 7 pm, Bay Chapter Office, 2530 San Pablo Avenue, Berkeley.

At the monthly meeting of the Chapter Wilderness Committee, Mike Painter, coordinator of Californians for Western Wilderness (CalUWild), will present a slideshow on the wild landscape of Utah and how you can join in efforts to protect it.

In this wild and beautiful landscape, only a small amount of wilderness has been designated so far, but the threats continue, including oil and gas exploration, uranium mining, potash development, and off-road vehicle abuse.

For more information about CalUWild, see www.caluwild.org. For questions about the program, contact Mike at mike@caluwild.org.

Whether you’ve always wanted to visit Utah, or you have been there and want to know more about current conservation issues, please come. It’s a great chance to see some of the landscapes that make Utah so special!
